I Smell Progress Part I


I’m back!!!! Did you miss me? Of course you did!

Things seem to be getting better around here it seems. 7 grand later the truck is finally fixed, car is fixed, and I’m so ready to get back to putting money into the house. It pains me to think of how far along we could be right now if all that money didn’t have to go into our vehicles. We’ve had some pretty crappy luck the past several months. I feel a change for the better on the horizon though.

Lets get back in the kitchen…

I’m very happy to report that we have the temporary kitchen in. It isn’t pretty by any means but its functional. Some 2×4’s and laminated particle board and we have a counter and some much-needed shelves.

Kitchen Counter

Fancy New Counter!

With our temporary kitchen comes a sink and a dishwasher. I can’t tell you how old it was getting bringing all our dishes and such into the basement to wash them in the utility sink. We also had two fridges in the basement so that meant even more trips up and down the stairs, ugh!!!

Dish Washer

Hells Yes! A dishwasher!


Bad luck strikes again!

No sooner than when we move both our fridges up to the kitchen that both of them decide to quit working. Damn this luck of ours! One of them still works but has to be manually defrosted once a week for the fridge to work. A pain to say the least since the freezer has to be emptied and then we have to plug-in a hair dryer to defrost it.

Things can only go up from here right?!
